War Orphans, Capitalist Family, and Postwar North Korea's State-Form

September 29, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki A201

Professor Harrison Kim (History, UHM) will be presenting "War Orphans, Capitalist Family, and Postwar North Korea's State-Form" as the first event of this year's History Workshop, on "People in Motion: Histories of Human Geographic Mobility and Immobility."

Who can move? Who can't move? Who has to move? Why? in our contemporary moment thousands of people in our community and on our campus confront discriminatory barriers affecting their ability to move freely across national borders, to feel safe coming and going from their places of study, work, visits to friends, family, home and more. The ability of people to move through space has historically been celebrated, discriminated against, relied on for the provision of labor and economic might, territorial conquest, the transmission of cultural ideas and practices, and has fuelled political conflicts. Professor Kim will consider these issues from the perspective of a historian of North Korea.
